About Vibrio Parahaemolyticus Poisoning:
Illness caused by V. Parahaemolyticus infection include diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, headache, fever and chills. Symptoms usually appear from 12 to 24 hours after eating contaminated Shellfish and normally last from two to seven days. Vibrio Parahaemolyticus infections can be life-threatening for immune-compromised people or those with chronic liver disease. Also at greater risk are people who regularly take antacids, heart or Diabetes medication, and those who have had antibiotic or Cancer treatments recently.

If you suspect your Shellfish is contaminated, do not eat it or serve it to others. If you experience the symptoms outlined above and suspect Vibrio Parahaemolyticus Poisoning, seek medical care on an emergency basis, taking the suspected contaminated food for further analysis.
